AUSTRALIA INCREASES IRAQ DEPLOYMENT

In an age where freedom and democracy aren't particularly popular, and certainly not in the Middle East or amongst the assorted Euro-weenies, Australia has once again stepped up to the plate.

And what have the Aussies done? Have they followed the Spanish example of packing up their burros and surrendering? Nope...the government of Australia, led by Prime Minister John Howard, is increasing the troops in Iraq. That's right, increasing...as in sending more. 450 more, to be exact. This on top of the 950 it already has there. The troops will help replace 1,500 Dutch troops that are being pulled out.

Howard said he would keep troops in Iraq as long as needed. He also had this to say: "I believe this is the right decision. It will make a significant contribution to the coalition effort. It will make a significant contribution to the rebuilding of Iraq."

Nice to know there aren't any weasels down under


seems like there still some good leaders besides whats going around.
